Morning Prayer / Evening Prayer

MORNING PRAYER

IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER, OF THE SON AND OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.

Amen.

On waking, Heavenly Father, I sing Your praises and I dare say to You again with confidence the prayer that the divine master taught us: Our Father who are in the depths of the Eons, may Your holy Logos and Christ be understood and adored in all the Universe; may the kingdom of Your Holy Spirit come to us, may Your will be done on earth as in heaven. Give us this day our spiritual food, the strength and courage to earn the bread for our body. Forgive us our digressions from Your laws, as our Assembly forgives those of repentant sinners. Support us in our weaknesses so that we are not carried away by our passions and deliver us from the deceptive mirages of the Archon. For we have no other king than Your beloved son Christ our Saviour whose is the kingdom, the triumph and the glory for ever and ever.

Amen.

Lord, oh divine Propator, hear my prayer, listen to my supplications; let me hear he voice of Your mercy from the morning, for it is in Your hands that I place myself.. I adore You, I praise You, I give You thanks from the morning.

I thank You for having protected me during the night from all the dangers and all the evils which could have harmed me and from which You have covered me with your protection. During this day, remain my support, my strength, my refuge, my salvation and my consolation.

Amen.

 

Creed of the Gnostic Church

I believe in one God, eternal Propator and almighty Father, creator and attractor of all visible and invisible beings, the first tridyname amongst the divine Eons.

And in His only son, the divine logos, the prototype of man, the second tridyname, Christ, spiritual and physical light, born of the treasure of light, true God like the Father and consubstantial to Him, without whom nothing was made.

Who became incarnate on earth in the person of Jesus the Saviour and the star of the Pleroma, came down here below for us, taking on a soul and a body like our own in the breast of blessed Mary.

Who was manifest in Jesus from the time of his baptism until the time of his passion;

Who spoke to us through his mouth and taught us the very holy gnosis and the holy life, in order to deliver us from the slavery of the Demiurge and of his earthly Archon, to thus enable our return into the spiritual Pleroma our homeland, as he himself returned there after his death;

Who will come to earth again full of glory to judge the living and the dead;

Whose kingdom shall have no end.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the third tridyname, who proceeds from the Father like the son;

Who gives love with life, who puts us onto the path of truth and holiness, who unifies all beings, who is adored and glorified with the Father and the son.

I believe in one truly universal or catholic Church, the origin on earth of which goes back to that of the human race, but which in heaven constitutes the holy Pleroma, and is as old as God Himself, the perfect being.

I confess the two baptisms and the three other mysteries for the remission of sins.

I await, on the completion of the earthly Pleroma, the reappearance of the dead, the ascension of the Pleroma, lastly the final destruction of the spirits resistant to any conversion, at the same time as the destruction of the hylic (physical) world, the work of the Demiurge.

Amen.

 

Let us pray

Oh my Father, I thank You for all the good things that I have received from you so far. It is also by an effect of Your goodness that I see this day; I want to use it to serve You. I devote to You all my thoughts, words, deeds and sorrows. Bless them, oh my God, so that there will be none which are not activated by Your love and which do not tend to glorify You.

IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER, OF THE SON AND OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.

Amen.

EVENING PRAYER

IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER, OF THE SON AND OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.

Amen.

Night has spread its veils over us, everything invites us to meditate. I raise my thoughts to you, oh divine Propator, and I come into your presence to examine the conduct of my day.

Examination of conscience

Did I hide my religious thoughts when, on the contrary, I should have expressed them clearly? – Have I mixed the name of God with words of impatience, anger, lying or thoughtlessness? – Have I at all times had a firm will and have I always subjected it to the light of reason? – Have I always preserved my dignity? – Have I always been moderate in prosperity and patient in adversity? – Have I been angry? – Have I been proud, vain or ambitious? – Have I always treated my neighbour like a brother and with love? – Have I acted out of hatred or vengeance? – Have I abstained from gossip, from slander and from rash judgments? – Have I put right the wrong caused to my fellow-man? – Have I always told the truth? – Have I always kept my word when it has been given? – Finally, have I filled my day well?

Those, oh my Father, are many faults; I admit them before you, and even though you do not need my confession and you see into the depths of my heart, I confess them to you nevertheless and I admit them before heaven and earth because I have greatly sinned in words, in deeds and in omissions; it is my fault, my own fault, my grievous fault. Oh my God and my Father, I have sinned against you, I am no longer worthy to be called your child; break the hardness of my heart and by your infinite strength and goodness, bring forth from it tears of penitence. Forgive me, oh my God, for all the wrong that I have done and caused to be done; forgive me for all the good I have not done and which I should have done, or that I have done badly; forgive me for all the sins that I know of and for those which I do not know of: I feel sincere repentance for them and I want to make an effort to put them right.

Amen.

 

Let us pray

Lord, oh divine Propator, who are the Father of lights and the protector of all those who hope in you, deign to take me in your holy protection during this night and keep me from all danger and from every peril. During the sleep of the body, make my soul watch in you. Subdue in me all wrong desires; make my evil thoughts and all the dangerous illusions of Satan. Grant your powerful protection to my parents, to my friends, to all those who make up the family of followers and generally to all men. Father, as I fall asleep, I place my confidence in you and in the double and shining star of the Pleroma.

Amen.

IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER, OF THE SON AND OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.

Amen.
